Foraging Friday (week 24) Summer Fungi

Posted 15/6/2018

Hi folks, while I prefer to do the telling most weeks, there are times when I simply must bow to the foraging experts and today is one of those days! Many of you might be surprised at the notion of gathering mushrooms in Summer (they're meant to be a wet weather forage right?) but if there is rain enough to grow plants there will be mushrooms too - you just need to look in the right places and know what you're looking for...

Posted 8/6/2018

Wild Strawberries are almost ripe & ready for eating!

At only 1cm in diameter Wild Strawberries are MUCH smaller than what we're used to finding in the supermarket, even compared to our daintier English varieties but well worth tasting!

Foraging Friday (week 22) Elderflower

Posted 1/6/2018

Elder is flowering now, we show you how to turn it into a refreshing Summer drink!

Elder is an easily recognisable hedgerow shrub, sporting great frothy bundles of flowers in June - I say it's easy, there are some lookalikes to the untrained eye but (as with anything) once you know it, you know it!

Foraging Friday - Rosebay Willowherb

Posted 25/5/2018

Rosebay Willowherb aka Fireweed is worth meeting, even if just to admire the impressive flowers!

Towards the end of Summer the gelatinous pith from inside the thick stems can be removed and is high in carbohydrate. It’s most useful for thickening soups and stews, though can be eaten raw with a texture and flavour likened to a peppery cucumber.

Posted 18/5/2018

Herb Robert (Geranium robertianum) is one of those plants we’ve likely encountered many times with hardly a further thought other than to appreciate it’s beauty, or perhaps we’ve gardened it away in irritation.
